* Jack's Inner Self [[spoiler:aka Mad Jack]] from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' ([[SamuraiJack/TropesSeason5 season 5]]). [[spoiler:How Jack had become virtually emotionless and cold to the point of simply abandoning hope and relinquishing himself to despair in Season 5? That'd be the result of this side of him, driving his actions in the interest of simply doing all he could to survive.]]

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' - The Beast of Darkness is the personification of all of Guts's hatred and bloodlust which was born from the horrors he suffered during the Eclipse and from the two years he spent WalkingTheEarth as the Black Swordsman, seeking vengeance against Griffith and every demon he could find.

* The human Twilight Sparkle suffers this in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree'' as she's haunted by her actions as Midnight Sparkle. It gets worse when she finds out she possesses magic and she's afraid of using it lest Midnight Sparkle takes control again. It takes a major pep talk from Sunset and the other girls to get her to realize her power is her own and not to let the past control her.

* ''Franhise/{{Bionicle}}'':
** The other Toa feared that this might have been the case with Lewa, who's been infested by [[PuppeteerParasite a Krana]] and temporarily became part of the Bohrok Swarm. After the Krana had been removed, Lewa still possessed the Bohrok HiveMind's internal knowledge, and was thus mistrusted by some of his teammates, to the point where even he thought that he was secretly evil. He got over it after the Bohrok Swarm's defeat.
** Hordika venom brings out the bestial side in those that get infected, although it can mostly be mentally suppressed.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', the members of Strega have Personas that actively try to kill them. To prevent this, they have to take suppressants that have nasty side-effects. [[spoiler:This is because their Personas were forcefully awakened]].
** The Shadows. They're manifestations of humanity's worst flaws and suppressed dark thoughts. It's best shown in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', in which the protagonists each have to face shadow versions of themselves. In this case, suppressing the Enemy Within is the ''worst possible course of action'' since this is what makes them hostile. Accepting their flaws and resolving to deal with them via character development transforms the Shadows into Personas.
